Not-Yet-Spiky Baby Porcupine Fuzzballs (Pics)

You know, for an animal that is oh so scary and dangerous when its grown, porcupines are insanely cute when they're babies. When their huge quills have yet to grow, and they're still tiny little huggable fuzzballs, they are so cute and underrated it's basically criminal. So, it's time to give some love to yet another extremely underrated baby animal, and this time, it's the not-yet-spikiest fluffball. 

Let's be real though, us, animal lovers, have a special place in our hearts for the adorableness of dangerous animals-especially their ferocious baby versions. And this one is no different. It is definitely an animal that is much more awwdorable than you ever gave it credit for.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Adorably Disheveled Barnaby

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Barnaby, the cat whois adorably disheveled and looks like he hasn't had his morning cup of coffee yet! 

Barnaby's unique look definitely resonates with all of us humans everywhere. He looks scruffy and sleepy and we feel that from the depths of our hearts. In an interview with CatCon, we get an inside glimpse into Barnaby's life! Barnaby is a one-and-a-half-year-old dollface Persian cat from Missouri. 

In an interview with CatCon, we get an inside glimpse into Barnaby's typical day routine: 

"Well, I wake mom up at 4:00 a.m. because I am hungry and I miss her. Then after breakfast, I let mom hold me and brush me for approximately 3 minutes. I eat wet food with gravy, so I like mom to brush it out of my beard afterward. Then I play with my humans and run around and act like a big scary predator and make them all laugh for a little while. I like to hide behind objects that are much smaller than me and then jump out when the humans least expect it. Often I go and lie under the couch and sleep until dinner time. I used to meow at my PURRents all night long to try to get them to wake up, but I've stopped doing that recently. I seem to get more treats now."

We also got to find out what Barnaby's life motto is:

"I'm always very busy." Whether I'm taking a ten-hour nap, or watching dust float, I'm always very busy.

Barnaby, never stop being your adorable sleepy-looking self! We admire your work ethic and your ability to connect with people around the globe! We wish you nothing but love, health, and happiness! Follow Barnaby on Instagram

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Wolfie, The Smiling Cat.

Viscachas Look Like They're Perpetually Done With Everything

Do you ever just feel... done with everything? Viscachas totally get you. They are cute, they are fluffy, they are soft, but my goodness, they are grumpiness encapsulated. Whoever knew that something so cute could look so done with life. 

They remind us of cats in that sense. Fluffy and cute but also really, really done with our human shenanigans. Still, viscachas take the win on this one, because at least cats are happy sometimes. Viscachas really are just... perpetually done. We understand them though. We get it. And considering not only how relatable they are, but also how painfully adorable they are, we would like to officially announce them as our spirit animals.

Kitty Ankles Also Known As 'Kankles'

What's the cutest part of a cat? That's a tricky question because every part of a cat is the cutest part! 

Including their adorable fluffy kankles! Something that no one seems to care about in humans has an entire subreddit devoted to it for cats. Why? Because every part of a cat is the cutest! Cat's feet, also known as "peets" in the cat-lover community, has a new term to add to its ever-growing collection: kankles. Kankles are kitty ankles and we are just as obsessed with them as the rest of the world. And if you aren't obsessed with them... you're about to be.

Forbidden Bellies Of Floof (Cat Bellies)

You must pay a toll to gain access to our secret kitty committee, and that toll is a photo of the forbidden belly of floof. We absolutely adore cat bellies, the shape, the softness, the floof! And while many, many cats use their belly to lure us, weak humans, into their obvious traps, we will always happily fall for that trap. 

However, we are quite aware of many, many cats who don't use the forbidden belly as a trap, but they actually like belly rubs. Weird, right? Weird but not that unusual. When in doubt, go in for that belly rub, even if it leaves you with scratches all over -- trust us, it's all worth it.

Fluffy Lynx And Their Huge Mitten Paws (Pictures)

Could there ever be anything better than tiny kitten beans? Today, we're attempting to answer that question. Huge fluffy mitten lynx beans. Well, paws. They're paws are so fluffy, there's barely any bean to be seen. If there's any rival to tiny kitty beans it's this. 

Honestly, we're not sure what we want more - to pet them or to have them pet us. Normally cats feets are too sharp for petting humans, but these paws are so fluffy, being petted by them sounds like a pretty good idea to us. But since we can't have that, we will have to settle for loving and appreciating these large cats' large fluffy paws from afar.

Wholesome Fluffy Arctic Foxes Blending In With Snow

There's nothing quite like the magic of snow. White covering everything in something that feels like a blanket of purity. And though we may be hiding at home, it's the winter animals' time to absolutely thrive. 

One of our favorite winter animals is the fluffy, gorgeous arctic fox. Arctic foxes are honestly just as pure as snow, both because of how perfectly white they are, and that's beautiful, but also because... they're foxes, and is there anything purer than foxes? Arguable. Foxes are always adorable and wholesome, but arctic foxes in the snow really bring out that wintry magic.

Awwdorable And Gorgeous Snow Leopard Appreciation Gallery

Snow leopards are everything. They just are. They are the purrfect blend of fierceness, cuteness, and just overall beauty. Their gorgeous fur and they're oh so fluffy! We don't think we could ever get tired of looking at such purrfection. 

International Snow Leopard Day was just a few days ago and we must honor these beauties by looking at their adorable pictures and watching their squeal-worthy videos. Did you know that snow leopards can't roar like their other feline friends? Instead, snow leopards use a call which has been described as a 'piercing yowl' that is so loud, it can be heard over the roar of a river!  

There is said to be only as few as 4000 snow leopards left in the wild. However, because they are so incredibly inclusive, it's difficult to get an accurate number. Snow leopards are being threatened due to climate change, habitat loss and deterioration, poaching, and more. Read about how you can help save these elusive beauties. 

A majority of the photographs below are taken by the talented @walkuptosky on Instagram. Check out her photography for endless incredible animal photographs, you won't be disappointed.

Ghost Cats: White Fluffy Cat Appreciation

Fluffy white cats are actually ghosts, did you know that? They're so white, it's enough for them to stand in front of a wall, and we will not see them at all anymore. They're perfect for Halloween time, dressed and ready any time and all the time. They're stunningly beautiful, these snow white kitties, and looking at them, all we want is to press our noses into their fluffy white bellies. 

But they're scary too! Of course! Don't forget! They're ghosts, ooOOoh, so scary. They're almost as scary as adorable black cats who are also ready for Halloween all the time. Really, we just want to appreciate as many cats as possible of as many colors as possible. It's just... cats. Cats are our ultimate weakness. And terrifying ooOOoh ghost cats are some of the absolute best.

Animals And Their Stuffed Animal Doppelgangers

Dogs are a person's best friends, and we're theirs. But what happens when you aren't home and they get a little lonely? Well, you must get them a stuffed animal buddy. And not just for your dogs. All animals could use an extra tiny soft friend to cuddle with and care for, even hedgehogs and owls.


And to make them feel more familiar, get them a stuffed animal that looks just like them. Perhaps there will be some confusion at first, but they'll become best friends quickly. And for us, their doppelganger love will make for the most wholesome and adorable picture moments, just like the ones you're about to see right now.
